The entire world is currently going through a scare of coronavirus as the outbreak is spreading in different countries across the globe. Contrary to the fear of an epidemic, COVID- 19 has also become a new meme material on social. Also, some of them are terming it as ‘overhyped’ topic of discussion. Addressing the same issue, Parineeti Chopra shared the post on social media.
Parineeti bashed those netizens who are calling an epidemic just ‘a hype on social media’. She also urged everyone to be alert and safe. She wrote, “GUYS STOP BEING OVERCONFIDENT AND READ THIS! Stop calling it a “hype on social media.” Stop saying “it only affects the elderly.” Stop saying “oh but the death rate of flu is more.” Stop thinking you are smarter than the virus. You are not. Coronavirus is real. Its extremely contagious and unstoppable. Please be smart. And be safe. #coronavirus”.
